Challenge Week 6 || Style A Summer Mantle
This week’s challenge is to style a summer mantle. You know I love cozy seasonal decor! Summertime is a great time to decorate for the season and what better place to add seasonal decor then to your mantle. Remember, always adapt these challenges to what works for you. If you don’t have a mantle, style a shelf, the top of your entertainment center, or your entryway table. Any flat surface space will work for this style challenge. Here are three tips to help you complete this weeks challenge.
1. Choose what type of summer decor you want to add to the space. You could decorate with patriotic decor, go with a beachy theme, maybe add nostalgic travel decor and family photos, or decorate with summer dried florals. Choose a theme and gather items together.
2. Decide if you want to add summer decor to your existing mantle decor or if you want to replace it. Remember that you don’t have to add a lot of seasonal decor to a space. One item may be all you need to bring in a bit of the summer season. Decide what works best for you, what you would prefer.
3. Finally, decorate your mantle for the season. Here are a few options. Add one large framed print, sign, or salvaged industrial piece to your mantle. Another options would be to layer framed art, mirrors, and salvaged pieces to the mantle shelf. And another idea would be to add a collection of items. Perhaps blue mason jars with dried florals or a collection of pottery to the mantle. I also love to add layered garlands to my mantles. Garlands are the perfect decor for every season! They add texture and interest to the space and just the right amount of cozy.
